Engaged sports-world celebrities Evelyn Lozada and Chad Ochocinco are to star in the U.S. reality series "Ev and Ocho," VH1 announced Monday.

The eight-part show is to premiere in September and is expected to showcase the couple's upcoming wedding, including all the scheduling, details and drama that lead to their special day, the cable network said.

The series will wrap with a two-part wedding finale.

VH1 has followed Lozada's story through four seasons of "Basketball Wives," beginning with the end of her engagement to NBA player Antoine Walker to her single life and now her current relationship with Ochocinco, wide receiver for the New England Patriots and former "Dancing with the Stars" contender.
